Ask me anything  
"Another tarot deck," I hear you exclaim, arms flailing in the general vicinity of my post- some of you excited and some of you exasperated by my inability to think outside of my designated theme. 

Alas, it is not true. This is the cover for a three-part comic series entitled ‘Page of Wands.’ Which, okay… is about tarot- but hey don’t judge me, okay? I have a thing. Anyway, I figured I’d take a break from coloring the comic book (tiring work- this monster is over 60 pages long) and work on the first cover.

See… the cane… is the wand. I’m so clever it makes me hurt.

Anyway, so there you go -motions towards that thing-

Ben Varrey
"This is the name for the mermaid in the Manx language of the Isle of Man. Her male counterpart is the Dinny-Mara or merman. Tales speak of the two natures of the Ben Varrey who can enchant fishermen into dangerous waters with her singing, or can help them find lost treasure." Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures. 

I tried to make her look somewhat like a salmon or trout.

Attercroppe.
" A curious and malicious fairy creature from Saxon folklore. Its name means ‘Little Poison Head,’ and it resembles a small snake with human arms and legs."  -Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures. 

I’ve had some thoughts on making a coloring book of magical creatures lately so that I have something for wee ones at the conventions I’m attending (since most of my comics might not be kid-safe.) I saw this entry in the Encyclopedia and I giggled, so here’s my interpretation of it.

Give you a sense of what I’m working on these days. I like this style: its fun and fairly simple. Which is good when you consider that this project is 65 pages long.
